Luckily, this cemetery has an active Jones' Cemetery Association of about 25 people (many are descendants of  those buried).  They repair toppled & broken stones, rake leaves and clear overgrowth, and even have a new website at http://www.jonescemetery.org.  Residents of Alpha House fixed fencing, and the American Legion places flags on graves of veterans.  There is a problem with flooding in part of the cemetery, and land is running out here.  A local doctor recently donated a 2.5-acre tract of land (which will double the size of the cemetery) -- but this needs lots of clean-up.  They also need to pay for surveying and lawyer fees before the new land can be used .  The Cem. Assoc. has been holding barbeques and letter-writing campaigns to raise funds for this.
There are over 1000 burials here, with the oldest being Wm. Jones in 1835.
For more info on the Cemetery Assoc., you can contact Bill Fletcher of  Fletcher Trailer Sales on Rt. 227 (he's the Association president), or call 387-5838.
